In the evening an open discussion/event will take place at the city of Mytilene.

Thursday 27/08: Contact with the local society

Since one of the primary aims of the camp is the communication and consciousness -raising of the local society, this day will see events, discussions and actions across the island (in Molyvos, Plomari, Kalloni, Ayiasos).

The issues of the criminalisation of migration, of the detention, isolation and of the (denial) of migrant rights will be the main topics of discussion this day. In the evening a mobilisation will take place at the Pagani detention centre, ending up at the city of Mytilene.

Saturday 29/08: Frontex, Port-police, Border status
